A finished quilt on the design wall!

What a great feeling to finish this UFO on the last day of May! Scrappy (Carolina) Chains is on the design wall, and it is done, done, done!


These quilt blocks were started in 2010 to use up scrap polka dot batiks. The block pattern is by Bonnie Hunter and was in the Quiltmaker magazine. 
The project get stalled by the challenge of making a layout decision.
I'm quite happy with it now that it's all said and done.






And I am quite tickled that the batting, the backing and the binding all were made from leftovers. Nothing was purchased in making this quilt!
It even has a label, which is kind of lame, but it is there!

Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design wall postings.

  11. A fun, fun finish! This quilt makes me smile--such happy colors sprinkled around, like confetti!
    Lame label--no, no, no! That is how I label all my quilts. By the time I get to the label I am out of energy to be clever. I slap that triangle in the corner and pat myself on the back for having labeled it! : )
